Unique Gift Box

Hello there!  Today I'm here to share a gift box that I made for FotoBella Design Team.


I saw this diagram that was posted by Scrappin' Escapes on Facebook and it was done with a paper plate.  I thought why a paper plate when I have all these beautiful  papers to play with that would make a great gift box.


The FotoBella bundle I'm using is Basic Grey's Grand Bazaar.  




Have a fabulous day!

Society Fifty-Two Challenge

Ok, it's been three weeks now since Society Fifty-Two launched it's weekly design challenges.  If you haven't checked it out yet on Instagram, you really should @society52.  It's awesome.  This weeks challenge was to use banners and the Thursday twist was to add 3 circles.

Here is my take on the challenge:




Banners are always fun to use on a layout.  On mine I chose to use large banners.  I added the circles with the embellishments.  The collection you see here is from Doodlebug Designs Day to Day collection. 


Lots of vibrant colors in this layout, which goes perfectly with the fun-loving photo of my son and his great fashion sense!  And in case you are wondering....he did wear that to school that day.

Have a fabulous day!  Follow me on Instagram @adh_j and follow @society52 to stay in the loop every week on what the fun challenges are.  It's a great way to spark your creative juices and get layouts done!

Grand Bazaar Card

One of the best bundles FotoBella has right now is Basic Grey's Grand Bazaar collection .  It is really beautiful with all it's fun patterns and vibrant colors.  There are endless possibilities especially when it comes to designing a card.  


An any occasion card is one of my favorite to make.  On this one, I left space at the top and bottom so that I could easily add the sentiment later to fit my needs.


I combined several of the papers and lined them up down the middle of the card.  Then layered embellishments to create the focal point of the card.  So fun and beautiful!  Another great bundle offered by FotoBella!

Smart Like A Fox

Hello Summer!  Kids are finally out of school, woohoo!  This is one of the photos snagged off the bulletin board the last day of school.  My daughter won the award at the beginning of the school year!  Another mom was kind enough to snap this photo since I just happened to be at the hospital in labor with her little sister at the same time!




Such an assortment of embellishments come with FotoBella's bundle.  I really love the black and gold wood pieces.  That fox, oh that fox is so cute!  I just had to use it.  You can see that I did hold off on the journaling for this layout.  I usually do all of my journaling at one time, once I have all the layouts in order and ready to go into the album.  That way I get all the facts straight and in order!


The chipboard sticker pieces are really amazing.  Great pop of color next to that black outline.  


Have a fabulous day!

Fun cruise photos and fun papers from Carta Bella's Ahoy There Collection make for a great layout.  The red striped vellum that looks amazing in this layout is from My Mind's Eye Necessities Red Collection.   Thanks to FotoBella.com, I've been working with these great products.


This layout has some real pizazz with the stripes, chevrons and other fun patterns.  


Embellishments are enamel dots from My Mind's Eye Blue Necessities. 


I really love all the fun layers, stickers and alphas.

You Make Me Happy Layout

Hey there, what have you all been up to lately?  I have been lovin' the new collection from Carta Bella, Ahoy There!  I've been waiting for the perfect collection to use for my cruise photos from 2012 and this is it.  I created this layout for the FotoBella Design Team.


Celebrating the New Year on a cruise is a blast!  Here's me and my little man at Formal dinner on New Year's.  Such a handsome boy.  I thought the navy's in the various papers were very elegant looking for this photo.  By adding the journal card sentiment, it gave the pop of color I needed and I complimented it by making a banner with the red paper.  



Here are some detail shots of the color accent that really make the layout.  The striped brad is from My Mind's Eye Necessities Red Collection.  It matches perfect and both these great collections can be found at FotoBella.com.  





Thanks for stopping by today!
